Motherhood Sessions | Julia+Henry

Julia is my first Instagram buddy turned real life friend. How often can you say that? She’s one half of the husband / wife owned Future Ancestor, a hip high-end vintage furniture and home decor shop down on Cherokee Street. We initially bonded over being new moms that made the move from big cities to suburban life in St. Louis. And now I look forward to our Moms Gone Mild monthly dinners that our new little group of friends has started.

What I love most about motherhood lifestyle sessions is capturing that quiet bond that a mom shares with her child. It was right around the holidays for our session so Julia had a neat idea to make salt dough ornaments with Henry. Which turned out to be a hilarious lesson in self control for a 2 year old. Over the next few days Julia noticed teeth marks in some of the ornaments. HA! And I love his face when he realizes the “cookies” they’re making don’t taste quite like he expected from his pastry school alum momma.

Thank you for welcoming me into your gorgeous home, Julia. You’re doing a great job raising Henry to be a sweet, smart, independent, curious little guy.
